Morning Intercessions

Morning Intercessions

Compassionate and gracious God, you are abundant in love and fidelity. Trusting in your care we pray: God of the living, hear us.  

Inspire interreligious dialogue and efforts to protect religious freedom. 

     God of the living, hear us.  

Heal our country of racism, division, and deceitful practices.  

     God of the living, hear us.  

Come to the aid of those who experience personal crises, relationship wounds, or scars from trauma.  

     God of the living, hear us. 

Our Father . . .  

May God help us in time of affliction, shield us from all harm, and fill our hearts with the peace of Christ, by the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
